White House Logs of Abramoff Visits

In May 2006, Judicial Watch announced the United States Secret Service, per the order of Judge John Garrett Penn of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, has released to Judicial Watch White House logs detailing the visits of corrupt lobbyist Jack Abramoff to the White House. The logs, which show two documented visits to the White House by Abramoff, appeared to be incomplete. In July 2006, the Secret Service released new logs detailing additional Abramoff visits to the White House. The documents were released after Judicial Watch had filed a “motion to compel” on May 17, 2006, after the Secret Service failed to comply with an April 25 court order to release all official logs detailing the Abramoff visits without redaction.

The first set of documents released to Judicial Watch in May indicated that Abramoff only made two visits to the White House on March 6, 2001, and January 20, 2004. The documents released in July show an additional seven data entries concerning Abramoff appointments on the following dates: March 1, 2001; March 6, 2001; April 20, 2001; May 9, 2001; May 17, 2001; December 7, 2001; and December 10, 2001. According to the cover letter accompanying the documents, “The…data reflect appointments involving Jack Abramoff, but do not necessarily reflect actual visits to the White House Complex.”
